If you didn’t know from reading the Twitter feeds, me and my homeboy Marcus (of this site and True Genius Requires Insanity) are going down to Austin, Texas for the annual South By Southwest music festival and trade show.
Hip-Hop and Alternative Urban acts will be well represented in Texas, with everybody from Solange, Janelle Moanae, B.O.B., and Blu all the way to Rick Ross (yeah, I know), Big Boi, and even Lil’ Jon making an appearance. From now until March 17th we will be profiling the must-see acts that will be performing at the festival, as well as covering all of the pre-parties, post parties, after parties, and after after parties that will be goin’ down. Let’s hope we don’t get tased and arrested, a la Kid Cudi.
On top of that, Washington, DC will be taking over Texas with groups like Bomani Armah (Read a Book!), Wanya, and bands like Benji Ferree and US Royalty representing the DMV.
